Police arrested Tannecia Dunn when she returned to the scene to retrieve her cell phone. She’s been charged with criminal possession of stolen property and unauthorized use of a vehicle. Two other teens fled the scene; they’re believed to be males. Police said it wasn’t clear who was driving.
The truck’s driver, 63-year-old Balroop Primal, left the truck running at about 9:15 a.m. on Wednesday.
“I thought the truck was locked so I went up,” Primal said. “You know I do it every day, six days a week. And by the time I come downstairs less than 10 minutes, the truck was gone.”
Primal reported the stolen vehicle and was ticketed for leaving the truck running. He got a replacement vehicle, restocked it, and finished making his deliveries.
More than two hours later, the joyride ended with debris spread across the lawns of two homes in the St Albans neighborhood. The 21-year-old driver of the other vehicle and a passenger were taken to a hospital, where one was listed in critical condition, the NY Daily News reported.
